It’s not dark yet, but it’s gettin’ there

It\'s not dark yet, but it\'s gettin\' there
Portsmouth, Ohio

I was born here and I’ll die here against my will
I know it looks like I’m moving, but I’m standing still
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb
I can’t even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don’t even hear a murmur of a prayer
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there.

from Bob Dylan’s ‘Not Dark Yet’
